Following ‘Innehalten’ at the Autorentheatertage festival 2014, the season continues with a fresh start – with conceptual changes and further developments that take into account the questions and insights of past Autorentheatertage festivals. What’s certain is that contemporary drama, new plays and text forms remain the focus of interest: not out of dogmatism or to differentiate them ideologically from other project-based, documentary or further theatre forms – which are just as important for a lively and critical exploration of our day and age – but as a celebration of the diverse strengths and qualities of contemporary playwrights, each with their own distinct language, attitude and perspective on our times. With this openness and curiosity, we will once again be going on a journey of discovery in 2015: to provide an eclectic festival programme and to discover new voices and plays to which the Autorentheatertage can offer a special platform.
but out of passion for playwriting as a synthesis of the most diverse strengths and qualities to which playwrights belong with their language, their defiance and their specific view of our times
Details on the call for proposals and the new concept of the Autorentheatertage 2015 can be found from the end of June 2014 at www.autorentheatertage.de.
